Pettitte making strides during rehab

CLEVELAND -- Andy Pettitte had a "good day" working out at the Yankees' complex in Tampa, Fla., on Tuesday, according to manager Joe Girardi.

Pettitte went through running and agility drills at the Himes Avenue facilities as he makes his way back from a strained left groin. Pettitte also made 90 throws on level ground and told The Associated Press he is "feeling good."

The All-Star left-hander is 11-2 with a 2.88 ERA in 18 starts this season. Pettitte hopes to make it back sooner than the initial estimates of four to five weeks on the shelf after being injured while throwing a pitch on July 18 against the Rays.
